What Are YOU Currently Reading?

Hi Friends!

Over the past 9 months I have shared alllllll of my feelings on books.  I have updated you on what I’ve been currently reading, books I have read in the past, and books that I can’t wait to read in the future.

Today it’s your turn 🙂

I want to hear from YOU!  In the comments below, tell me what YOU are currently reading!  I love posts like these because people feed off each other and learn about some great books.  I will often host discussions like this on my Facebook page but I’ve never done one on my blog…today is the day!

Please comment down below with the book title that you are currently reading.  Feel free to share your thoughts on it but absolutely NO SPOILERS!  Don’t be that person who ruins books for other people (aka my enemies)…

Have fun with this!  The more people who comment the more book ideas we can all get.  Absolutely feel free to reply to other comments as well!

I’ll leave the first comment…although the jury is still out on whether or not I will end up recommending this book once I finish.  IF I finish…Ugh.

  1. I haven’t had the urge to read The Silent Patient. If it’s dragging for you, that just confirms my feeling.
    I’m enjoying CITY OF GIRLS by Elizabeth Gilbert and NATALIE TAN’S BOOK OF LUCK AND FORTUNE by Roselle Lim. Both are very well written and engaging!
    I’m currently listening to ODESSA AGAIN by Dana Reinhardt. I think your daughter might enjoy it.

    1. I’m fascinated by the fact that you can read more than 1 book at a time! I have never been able to do this although I don’t think I’ve ever even tried. I’m always so intrigued by people who can do this…


      1. My 11 y.o. was a baby at the time and I had 2 books due at the library that couldn’t be renewed, so I taught myself how to multitask with them. 🙂 I read different formats at different times of the day and in different settings. My Kindle is usually for my workout. Print is for lunch breaks and Shabbat. Audio is for the car or for busy work/chores.


  2. I was about halfway done with A Simple Favor and stopped reading. I was not enjoying it at all. Sorry, Jenny. I just joined a true crime book club and the first selection is The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule – I read it a LONG time ago and it has always been one of my favorite books, especially among the true crime genre. So I started re-reading it a couple nights ago and I’m enjoying it even more than I did the first time around! Imagine how you would feel if a man you were good friends with ended up being a serial killer – yikes!!

    1. I’m about 40% into Simple Favor and I’m struggling too. I just don’t sympathize with the main character, so I have a really hard time with it. It may be one I put down and don’t pick up again. 😬


  3. I’m reading Many Hands Make Light Work by Cheryl Stritzel McCarthy. It’s a memoir in which she shares her fond childhood memories, being one of nine children living in 1970s Iowa. So far, it’s delightful! I’m also listening to Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson, who is also the narrator. I’ve loved all of the author’s previous books; this one is thriller-y where the others were not – I’m completely intrigued.

  4. I am still reading A Simple Favor, which I picked up from you. I see the dog earred pages as I am reading. I remember you saying you do that instead of bookmarks. Anyway, I am only about 100 pages in, as I haven’t had much reading time lately, but so far I am enjoying it. I love the short chapters and am enjoying the blog post style that it is written in. It is really easy to read.

  5. This afternoon I finished listening to The Other Mrs. Miller by Allison Dickson. I liked it and it held my attention but I feel like I was waiting for something much more climactic. I started this immediately after I finished The Night Olivia Fell and that one I loved!

  6. I just finished reading All Is Not Forgotten. At first I thought I was not going to like the book because of the subject matter, a young girl is raped. The unraveling of who committed the crime and the emotional back story of all of the family members was really interesting. My next book that I am going to read is Summer of ’69. I hope that it is good! I love most of Elin Hildebrand’s books.

  7. Currently reading The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl. Written by Timothy Egan, this is such an indepth account of a terrible time in American history. It follows several families and their communities through the rise and fall of the high plains. The destruction of native grass to plant wheat. The desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones. People dying from inhaling incredibly amounts of dust; just awful.


  8. I think that reading has the ability to broaden your way of thinking or challenge your beliefs, but in order to do that you’d need to read a diverse amount of literature.

    I personally don’t think that it can provide a total substitution for learning how to socially interact. It’s like art; you can know how to do magnificent pieces, know color theory, etc., but it doesn’t mean that one will be perfect when picking up a paintbrush.
